He is the idol in Korea. I'm past the age of idolizing a celebrity though. What I like about Bae Yong-jun is his watchable look. Since I don't speak his language nor do I read up rumors on stars, I really have got no idea what's going on in this person's private or even public life. I simply like to watch his TV series and like some of the characters he has been portraying. Actors are simply actors as far as I'm concerned.
As a man, Winston Chao is handsome and he's one of the very few Taiwanese actors who can speak good English and Mandarin. He made me laughed a great deal in the movie The Wedding Banquet and although I haven't seen all his works, I try to catch them as and when I can. A great actor and a nice looking one for that!
I admire Andy Lau not for his good looks but more for his business acumen and his persistence in his singing career. I heard him sing in his first album and I thought to myself that if this guy can really sing, anyone can sing! But he worked on it and eventually he became one of the most popular singers in the last 2 decades. Yes, he can sing now! And for that I kowtow to him. This guy has got what it takes to be a success! And succeed he did!
Very professional and one of the actor who is most true to his profession. Amazingly easy going and yet serious in his work. Highly regarded in the Chinese community and even more so in the eyes of the Chinese Government. I think Jackie Chan proves that a Chinese needs not be a second class citizen in the world!
